Kamm Lecture in Higher Education

The Oklahoma State University College of Education first held the Robert B. Kamm Distinguished Lecture in Higher Education in 1992.  The purpose of the Kamm Lecture series is to bring private and public sector leaders together to discuss issues that will shape the future of education, particularly higher education, in Oklahoma.

Robert B. Kamm served in Higher Education as a teacher, counselor, and administrator at Oklahoma State University for more than 45 years, including service as president from 1966 to 1977.  He was inducted into the College of Education Hall of Fame in 2000 and served on the College of Education faculty.  During his lengthy service, Dr. Kamm emphasized academic excellence and underscored the centrality of students, faculty, and staff in the learning experience.
